On the day after Christmas, Melissa & Omar hosted their friends and family for their Unique Space wedding…except they didn’t know they were coming to a wedding at all! Their guests thought they were attending their engagement party, and then…SURPRISE!
Melissa & Omar started their day at The Ace Hotel in downtown Los Angeles.
The fabulous Joanne Pio was on hand to document Melissa & Omar’s First Look.
After their First Look, Melissa & Omar and their Wedding Party walked over to The Unique Space.
As part of the subterfuge, Melissa changed out of her wedding dress and into a cocktail dress before guests arrived. She got to sample her DIY- donut wall with her nephew, the cutest guy at the whole wedding!
These donuts were kid-approved!
Once the party was underway, Melissa & Omar showed an adorable video to their guests that explained what was REALLY happening…a surprise wedding!
We invited guests outside to take their seats for the ceremony, and before we knew it, we were in the thick of the ceremony!
After the ceremony, guests were treated to a cocktail-style reception featuring eats by the In N Out Truck and Wheat & Fire Pizza Catering, a mobile wood-burning pizza oven!
After dinner, guests enjoyed the donut wall, a delicious homemade cake, and these adorable cookies, personalized with their wedding hashtag: #carafornialove
One of my favorite details from Melissa & Omar’s wedding was their life-sized photobooth cut-outs! Every guest was sure to get a photo with the Bride & Groom!
This wonderful video by RainbowFish Cinema tells the story of Melissa & Omar’s wedding day so beautifully. Check it out!
Melissa & Omar, I was so happy to provide Wedding Management for your wonderful wedding day! I was thrilled we successfully surprised your guests, and your wedding was truly one that I will always remember!
